Emirates Media Inc., parent company of Abu Dhabi Television, is to launch a game show that lets contestants win their own weight in gold. The new show, ‘You Weigh Gold’ will be presented by superstar Arab comedian, Dawood Hussein.

The show will begin in September and will involve contestants testing their general knowledge against each other. The show will be produced by Jean-Pierre Mitrecey, a French game show producer with more than 12 years of production experience.

“Viewers are becoming more and more sophisticated in terms of the types of programs they watch, even if it is light entertainment,” says Ismail Abdullah, director, Abu Dhabi Radio and TV.

“They want to be educated while being entertained. ‘You Weigh Gold’ is unique in that it combines the elements of a traditional game show with current general interest elements to attract a new generation of viewers. The new game show capitalises on the universal appreciation for education and trivia.”
